The thing is, to get the website and take ownership, he NEEDS access to gain control. That's why the money is in escrow. If the money is in escrow and he "steals" the site, then you get the money and the deal is done. Don't give him WA access. Just give him FTP access and admin access to WP and that should be enough. He doesn't need to log into your WA account.

There's some amount of risk in doing any type of buy/sell transaction, but you have a backup of the site so if anything goes wrong, you can restore the backup.

The part about Escrow is crucial, can he request his money back at this stage, under any circumstances?

Like, he as admin moves the site (and he already has the domain transferred), and then requests Escrow for his money back. This means it would cost him Flippa fee + Escrow fee, good business.

I sent questions to Escrow, must know this before I proceed.

Great question. I look forward to the advise from more experienced community members...

I'm not a coder or professional, but what I do now is that in summer my website was in the 'red' regarding site speed on mobile last summer and when I started WP rocket, and got to at least orange on mobile, a month later my statistics went WAY up.
But mobile speed was only about 30% and Google started to prefer higher speed, especially on mobile since the update in April of last year. Coïncedence? Could be.
But I wouldn't contact someone on Fivver for this, just use WP rocket.

When you say in red for mobile, I assume this is poor (red) URLs in Core Web Vitals. But it seems this may be just about site speed.

I have WP Rocket in three sites.

In one site, all mobile URLs were red in Core Web Vitals, this is not the same as site speed. So, contacted WP Rocket and their person was trying for several weeks and could not fix the issue. He officially gave up without any result.

Well, after that, by some miracle, suddenly all mobile URLs became green. My guess is that he did something that took effect much later. Now, this is more than 600 posts, so the effect should be visible, right?

However, there was not even the slightest change in GA and GSC statistics. All I have is a continuous decline in CTR in SERPs, and the site is practically dying. I am talking about the site that generated 5-figure monthly income, 1/2 million page views per month, 1 million impressions on Pinterest, etc. It is worth nothing now.

But I have another where all URLs are red and one where all 'need improvement'. Based on the experience with the site described above, I think it is pointless trying to fix these things, nothing will change.

Ok, as I said, could have been a coincidence in my case. So sorry that it didn't work out.

Oh my gosh,I would be devastated for a blog of 600 posts, which is a lot of work, to go down like that.
How is that even possible? Could support here on WA figure that out? Or another pro here maybe? So strange and horrible!

I went through this some years back hiring people through UpWork (actual coders) and it ended up being all for nothing. All the various settings and optimizations they did worked for a while, then not. Then they blamed other plugins. Then I emailed plugin authors and they blamed the optimizations. So it was running in circles. Then once I installed ads on my site (MediaVine) it all went out the window.

It's good to try to optimize for speed, but "having all green" in whatever speed check you use is not going to give you good results if you are actually trying to earn money from your site (in my opinion). Do the best you can to run a streamlined site, but it's not worth trying to be perfect IMO.

I think I shall give up with this.

One of the sites that I was checking was one of yours, and I see it failed in two criteria for 28-days statistics, CLS and INP. But when I run test I always get green for CLS, a perfect score 0.

The same is with my site, CLS is always perfect in my own tests (even with several proxy servers), yet Google's 28-day statistics gives a very bad result. It makes no sense.

I would consider using Mediavine if I reach 50k views per month, but does it really slow down your site as much then? If so, I'd rather stay with Monumetrics.
( I'm "green" on desktop, "orange" on mobile, it seems that mobile is getting more and more important)

My sites are not at all slow when I go through them, WP Rocket does a great job, without it and with the so-called Extreme speed at this hosting they look hopeless. All that Google's colors make no much sense to me.

I have actually been advised here when using WP rocket to turn OFF the speed thing here, as it conflicts with this!
I don't use the core web vitals here, I just use googles speed insights.
I once got lost in these core web vitals here, trying to turn the 'red' urls into better ones.

Wasted a lot of time and energy on it, not worth it at all and I don't understand it either, at all.

And I focus on just the site speed in general, if I would check every blog post in itself, I would go crazy.
If the site speed is ok on google speed insights, meaning out of the "red" zone on mobile (so not having to check each link separately), I really think that would be good enough for Google, no?

Unless Google itself tells you that there is a certain page that loads too slow, as I just have with a popular page on my website, I got a warning on Google search console.
So that one I will try to fix, I think it is because too many videos about the font.
Other than that, I wouldn't get lost in all of that, been there, done that, and it frustrated the hell out of me lol

It is far from easy to turn off the speed at this hosting, you cannot do this in reality. There is more to this issue, have been through it. It remains visible in Page Source.

As for Core Web Vitals, it is not up to you to use or not. This is at Google's side and we are apparently supposed to observe it and be mindful of what Google tells us. But as you have realized from my replies here, it may not be so or I cannot see this is so.

I think there is a misunderstanding here, you can and should turn off the site speed function here at WA when using WP rocket.

and I didn't mean to "ignore core web vitals", just not try to "maximize" every single blog post that is in the red zone on mobile, that would be a huge waste of time and energy, in my opinion.

I know this but I am saying that pressing this button will not switch it off. Have been through this trust me.

Hey Jovo,

Core Web Vitals are part of "page experience", i.e. what type of experience are visitors having when they visit a page on your website.

Plus, I know that Google will be releasing more "page experience factors" on an annual basis from now on.

However, when CWV first came out there was a massive rush within the industry to "sort our websites out".

That said, as you've noticed yourself, there doesn't seem to be much (currently) correlation between passing CWV and decent ranking.

It is stated that CWV is a ranking factor, and some people have even said that it can be the difference between two sites ranking, if their content is equally relevant and high in quality. i.e. the site with better CWV SHOULD rank higher.

But, again, as you've said, there seems to be a number of sites that do perfectly well with poor CWV.

I found this Case Study extremely interesting, plus take note of the couple of things that John Mueller mentions here.

https://www.advancedwebranking.com/blog/core-web-vitals-study/

As for the useless person on Fiverr, Hahaha!! It's not someone I've suggested is it?

If so, apologies, although I usually mainly deal with one person on Fiverr for speed issues, who does have a programmer background, but I have had other feelancers recommended to me.

That said, I've never known him to deal wth CWV, so I'll get in touch with him and ask him if he does.

Personally, I still think there's a huge amount of confusion around CWV.

Is speed a ranking factor? Apparently so.

Is page experience a ranking factor? Apparently so.

So, then why are so many sites ranking well with poor CWV and vice versa?

It's also interesting to note that in the case study above, more than 60% of RANKING sites appear to have failed Largest Contentful Paint of the CWV metrics.

It's a difficult subject to fully comprehend.

Partha

Your last sentence summarized it all. I would add one from my side, though not strictly my own to be honest, it is usually attributed to Socrates, and this is "now I know that I know nothing". Whatever I touch I see contradictions.

Yes, it was the person recommended by you. He said the site has a heavy load of Mediavine ads and he cannot deal with it. Though my ads are actually at the minimum rate for mobile. I asked, but you did the same for Partha who had the same ads, there was no reply. But no need to discuss this with him. He was honest after all, simply could not help. He expressed his high opinion about you, so this was something were we agreed easily.

People from Mediavine have an option to bypass ads to check CWV and they claim the issue is elsewhere. Now, where?

I shall check the link you suggested, thank you as always.

Great insights.

Hello pal..how old is your site? How much content do you have on it? Cheers...in fact..what is your site called, I will take a look.

It is 6 years old, more than 600 posts. But I have yet another 8 years old, 1200 posts, the same issue.

Are you a programmer? If not, you cannot help.

That told me! Happy to help.

I used to have it on sites for years, but it vanished, not sure why, and I forgot how I did it.

Pinterest gives details how to create two codes but it is far from obvio

There are many plugins that do this. I use https://www.wptasty.com/tasty-pins, and it comes with the added feature (why I bought it) of being able to enter your preferred Pinterest meta data into each image, and many other customizations.

Personally, however, I've disabled the pinterest hover button. I've found when people are browsing with intent to pin, they often have a browser extension to do that. You can try it out for yourself and see if it increases pin activity though. Every site and niche is different!

I am sure I had it (I mean hover) active without extra plugin, I just cannot remember how it was done. It was in my three oldest sites.

I found the way, no need for plugins. In GP it is in Elements and in Studio Press it is inside theme Customize, Header/Footer Script.

Nice!

You can add a plugin- Weblizar Pin It Button On Image Hover And Post.

You can add it without a plugin by going here- https://developers.pinterest.com/tools/widget-builder/?buttonType=imageHover The code you create will need to go in your footer. If you are comfortable editing code then you can do it through your theme editor but of you aren't you can use the headers and Footers plugin.

Actually there are two codes, and for both they say they must be added to posts separately which makes no sense.

Try this... If it says to need to use two codes copy them and then paste them in the footer of the Headers and Footers plugin. Save it and then go to your site and see if it is working.

I honestly haven't tried doing it manually. I will go right now and try it manually so that I can hopefully help you out better.

Okay So I went and checked it out. When you are on the Pinterest Widget Builder click on Save Button > Choose the button type (Image Hover) > Large > Choose your Language. Under the preview you will see a code.

Copy and paste the code in your footer through the header and footer plugin unless you are comfortable with coding you can do it like I mentioned before in the theme editor.

Image below for reference. I think you are given two codes because you are choosing pin instead of the save button.

It worked with the plugin you suggest and also with Ad Inserter, I had them in some sites. But I am trying to find a way without plugins.

Go to appearance> theme file editor> footer (footer.php) You will want to paste the code before the close of the footer.

Thank you Lisa. This may not be the best option, it may disappear next time when the theme is updated, unless a child theme.

I found ways, but this may be theme dependent. In GeneratePress it can be done safely in Elements, Hooks. So this is what I did in some sites. In some others there was again a box in Theme settings, Customize, to do this.

In some I used the mentioned already existing plugins. So all in all, I have the button back again in all sites. Problem solved. Your help is appreciated and it was motivating.

Your welcome! Yes, you are right about the update. I am happy that you got it figured out! :)

Hey Jovo,

No immediate answer, I'm still thinking about it, LOL.

Do me a favour though.

Go to Google Search Console.

Leave it as "Last 90 days".

Go to your PAGES.

Locate the article in question and click on it.

Look at the traffic graph.

Is there a specific date that traffic just bombed to zero?

We can then work backwards from there to work out what has happened.

Also, check that it is still actually indexed, and hasn't been de-indexed for some reason.

Partha

Actually it shows there, not very impressive, 414 impressions, 10 clicks, average position 16, but at least it is continuously there.

However when I search for it in Google (for any combination of words in the targeted keyword) it does not appear at all. So I have no a clue how this average position is generated when it is not in Google.

The clicks may come from indirect traffic due to internal links and Pinterest.

When I search for targeted keyword and variants, I do get my separate 2 lists posts where the product is included. So this is the source of the traffic traffic.

Hmmmmm, well the 10 clicks on GSC is obviously organic traffic from Google.

You can click the "queries" for the article and see exactly what search terms gave those 10 clicks and their "avg pos".

So, it's obviously still ranking (I take it you're still getting impressions this week?)

I'm still thinking, LOL.

Realistically, you shouldn't have to go through the "Google Dance" with an established website.

You've probably seen this yourself - you write an article with very low competition, no real competitors at all on page one, and within 24-48 hours you're ranking position one.

I still say that even for an established websites like yours, you won't reach your full traffic potential for an article until about 4 months, i.e. you rank for more-and-more related keywords each month.

I'm still thinking, LOL.

I don't know at the moment - in my mind, you have proven expertise in your niche, you have an established website, you have written a product review exactly how Google would love to see every product review, personalized, actually using the product, your own images, etc.

As long as your still getting impressions, as "worhtless" as that feels, you know you're still in the search results for certain product-related terms.

I dunno, sorry Jovo, I still have to think about it some more.

Partha

Yes impressions look continuous, see the graph, but I have been checking it a few times in the past a few weeks and could never see it in Google. So there should be interruptions in impressions which I do not see here.

it is dancing quite a lot. It was indexed and ranked on April 8, it should be stable now.

I took the product with me to the mountains recently wanted to make a video and pictures in a true environment but gave up, it looked pointless. Everything looks pointless.

But I did start a new site recently, more or less (hopefully it is more than less) following your approach. Just to know that I appreciate what you are writing at this platform.

The clicks may come from indirect traffic due to internal links and Pinterest.

When I search for targeted keyword and variants, I do get my separate 2 lists posts where the product is included. So this is the source of the traffic traffic.

Hmmmmm, well the 10 clicks on GSC is obviously organic traffic from Google.

You can click the "queries" for the article and see exactly what search terms gave those 10 clicks and their "avg pos".

So, it's obviously still ranking (I take it you're still getting impressions this week?)

I'm still thinking, LOL.

Realistically, you shouldn't have to go through the "Google Dance" with an established website.

You've probably seen this yourself - you write an article with very low competition, no real competitors at all on page one, and within 24-48 hours you're ranking position one.

I still say that even for an established websites like yours, you won't reach your full traffic potential for an article until about 4 months, i.e. you rank for more-and-more related keywords each month.

I'm still thinking, LOL.

I don't know at the moment - in my mind, you have proven expertise in your niche, you have an established website, you have written a product review exactly how Google would love to see every product review, personalized, actually using the product, your own images, etc.

As long as your still getting impressions, as "worhtless" as that feels, you know you're still in the search results for certain product-related terms.

I dunno, sorry Jovo, I still have to think about it some more.

Partha

Yes impressions look continuous, see the graph, but I have been checking it a few times in the past a few weeks and could never see it in Google. So there should be interruptions in impressions which I do not see here.

it is dancing quite a lot. It was indexed and ranked on April 8, it should be stable now.

I took the product with me to the mountains recently wanted to make a video and pictures in a true environment but gave up, it looked pointless. Everything looks pointless.

But I did start a new site recently, more or less (hopefully it is more than less) following your approach. Just to know that I appreciate what you are writing at this platform.
